docs » cp.strings.source.table

Loads strings from provided tables, allowing for a given language variation. Eg:

local src = require("cp.strings.source.table").new():add("en", {foo = "bar"}):add("en", {foo = "baz"})
local valueEn = src:find("en", "foo") -- "bar"
local valueEs = src:find("en", "foo") -- "baz"

This will load the file for the specified language (replacing ${language} with "en" in the path) and return the value. Note: This will load the file on each request. To have values cached, use the cp.strings module and specify a plist as a source.

API Overview
